Kraft bags are made of special, extra strong white or recycled paper.
Kraft papers are also available with smooth or ribbed texture. Kraft paper for bags has been specifically designed to be highly durable and significantly stronger than an average bag made of, for example, thinner coated paper.
Although it is not laminated, the durability of a kraft bag is close to that of a laminated paper bag.There is a variety of surface finishing options from spot UV to embossing and gold-plating.
Kraft bags come with the same handle and bottom reinforcing cardboards as laminated bags (from 500 g up to 800–900 g). The bags are available with 5 to 7 mm rope handles or even with satin ribbon handles.
